How can cross-generational relations work effectively?

The tremendous value of family-run businesses

The current Italian economic situation reveals the tremendous value and myriad positive characteristics of family-run businesses, as well as the numerous difficulties they face over time.

If the specific difficulties family-run businesses have to face are managed effectively, this model is able to provide superior results compared with non-family businesses, thanks to the role of the owner family in guaranteeing continuity, attention over the long-term, as well as maximum quality. In particular, the “generational succession” must be well-prepared and managed using suitable methods and timeframes.

This meeting will examine these themes in depth and, thanks to the concrete experience of the speakers, will focus on the practical ways of assuring over time and from generation-to-generation, the safeguarding, growth and governance of the company itself.

Specifically, the meeting has been designed to provide concrete answers to the following questions:

  • How can cross-generational relations work effectively?
  • Specifically, how can the problems family-run businesses face over time be solved concretely? And through what means?
